Rev. Gerald Durley, Ph.D., Pastor Emeritus, Providence Missionary Baptist Church of Atlanta, GeorgiaGreg Dalton, Founder and Host, Climate One
While solar panels and electric cars are typically associated with upper-class white people, the transition to clean energy is also a civil rights issue. Communities of color often live closest to factories and refineries that spew toxic pollution. That’s one reason why polls show more African-Americans and Latinos, compared to non-Hispanic whites, say climate change is a serious concern.
Rev. Gerald Durley works with preachers and activists across the country advocating for a cleaner and more inclusive economy. Join us for a conversation about the climate and civil rights movements.
